Check-in #4 Sunday 9:30 a.m.
Last night I actually FINISHED by mini teacup quilt. Made the binding, got it handsewn. DONE! Pictures to come later! Also did some more hand quilting on the Red and White quilt...it's slow, but I am making progress. Hopefully, I'll have more to report later!
Check-in #5 Noon
Finished 3 more blocks of the Radio Flyer baby quilt. I need to add one final round of cream logs to each of the 12 blocks to make them all 12" blocks. Then I can sew the top together.
Check-in #6 3:00 p.m.
Not much to report. First I got distracted answering emails...you know how that can suck you in. Then no dog food, so a trip to the store...can't let the Fudge starve to death and those eyes look at me and say, "how could you forget about me!" I do have the first 3 Radio Flyer blocks done. They look so much better with that last round of cream logs. One more check in later tonight with pictures.
Final Quilt-a-thon Report
I told myself I wasn't going to beat myself up for what I didn't finish. I accomplished lots and feel pretty good about what I did. The Pay It Forward gals will be getting their goods soon. A few little things to do and then those gifts are on their way. No hints...sorry...you all are too smart and I want it to be a surprise.
I finished adding the cream outer log to all of these blocks. 12 blocks done. I'm not sure about these yet. They seem too busy to me. I need to add either sashing or borders to make it as big as you all suggested. I'm thinking about black sashing??? Is that nutty? I'll lay it out tomorrow and take a look. The only problem with working from stash is that I run out of fabrics. I have some of the Oliva dots left and the cream and I have black in my stash. Any thoughts?
Lastly I totally finished...binding and all, the mini teacup quilt. I'm so proud of it. I wanted it to have a soft kind of kitcheny feel. I'm also pleased that I did the pattern. I know it's just a simple teacup, but I worked hard on it.
I think I'm done for the night. Hubby is out of town for most of the week so I need to get him ready. The sun came out, so maybe a quick walk before dinner. Hope you all had a great weekend!
